Thrive Senior Living and Pulliam Investment Company have broken ground on the $15 million community that will consist of 89 private resident suites, including a dedicated and separate neighborhood for residents with memory support needs. The opening is scheduled July 2015 and will be staffed by 40 employees.

The complex will be on the site once planned for Buncombe Place, a business park.

The Village at Greer will offer amenities such as an activity center, beauty salon, spa, coffee shop, and a fitness center. Technology will also allow residents to enjoy “Streetview Tours” of anywhere on earth, play interactive trivia, and participate in various activities intended to both entertain and sharpen mental acuity.

“The Greer market hasn’t seen a new assisted living and memory care competitor of this kind before, and hasn’t seen any new entrants in the market in over 10 years,” said Jeremy Ragsdale, CEO of Thrive Senior Living. “We are excited to join this rapidly growing community and feel there is an extremely strong demand for a truly new and innovative approach to caring for seniors”.

“As a local resident, I have seen the population grow in size and age, and the need for a new approach to senior care is overwhelming,” said Spartanburg’s John Easterling, president of Pulliam Investment Company.”

The design team consists of THW Architects of Atlanta, and Studio Six 5 Interiors of Austin, Texas. Construction is being overseen by a joint venture between Culpepper Construction Company and Compass Contracting.
